My WIP 2011

Thanks everybody for your kind words: seems like you didn't forget me after all.

Today I want to show you my latest stitching. I've owned that kit for almost 10 years: I had bought it at Michael's on sale after Christmas. I always loved the colors and you may remember colors are the key to make me finish a project. That's why I always choose carefully

what I'm stitching. I know, you want to see so here we go: Yes it's a Christmas design !!! You may recognize an Ursulla Michael design.




I've started it in december 2011 and here is my yesterday's progress:





As you can see, i've stitched almost all the stockings. I still need to stitch the last on the right. There are lots of green in that one so it's not a surprise if I kept it for the end, right? I also need to do some backstitching on most of the stockings. I'm stitching it on an opalescent white lugana 28 count and it's really nice to stitch.

I have to admit it : I forgot to show one finished last time. Well, it's not completly finished as I didn't add the beads ... yet ! Let's face it: I've never beaded and even though everybody says it's easy, it does stress me out a little bit and I have nobody to show me how to do it so it's anunfinised fairy for now ...



I took a better picture of Friendship grow to show you :


Isn't it beautiful?

Of course, you can enlarge each picture if you want to have a better view.

Thnaks again for stopping by my dear stitching friends !!!

Your stockings are looking gorgeous. I LOVE both of your other pieces and I have yet to bead as well - I just avoid designs with beading although it is getting harder.

Oh Wow! On all of them. You appeal to my senses with your design choices. LOL The stockings are adorable, the fairy is gorgeous and the watering can makes me long more for the warmer days now that it's snowing. XD Well done.

The stockings are so pretty. Not much to go before a finish :)

Beading does not stress me out but it does go really slowly for me. Still, the results is oh so worth it. All the bling ^.^

Friendship Grows is gorgeous. Unfortunately, I couldn't seem to click on the picture to enlarge it.

Hugs,
Veronica.
